    Windows 8 apps not working


    Hi , guys , I am running a 32 bit version of Windows 8 on my laptop . All is fine except that all of the Metro apps except IE 10 and control panel is not working . What should I do , install the 64 bit ? Anybody faced the problem ?
    My screen resolution is greater than 1024x964 . Any suggestions , apart from changing the account type during login .
    Thanks

    Expecting a plausible answer soon .

    Run sfc scan. Open a command prompt as admin (right click cmd, choose run as admin), then type:

    sfc /scannow

    Hit Enter, let it finish. You may need to repeat.

    Well if you are keen, you can try refreshing or resetting.

    Have you turned off UAC through the EnableLUA registry setting?

    That will kill the Metro Apps except IE and maybe one or two others.
